The eight week healthy weight loss challenge - Page 14

post #261 of 347

Had a slightly crazy work week, very little sleep, and then got my period today. Scale shows about a 1-2lbs loss so far for this week, which is amazing. I have been able to get some great work outs in but things have felt hectic. Hoping my period does not throw me off too much. Skipped having serious cravings (which was nice since I went crazy last week).

181.3 today!! 2.7 pounds down.  Not bad considering I was at a music festival ALL DAY Saturday, and the meal options weren't super healthy.


bag.gif Okay, now for the walk of shame... No pie last week!  I'm bad, I know, I'm sorry.  I will do it tonight without fail, I promise


Looking forward to some more weigh ins from you all

Down one pound again.


I'm happy with that this week since I sat on the couch for 4 days after my surgery, then took until yesterday to start any cardio.

post #267 of 347

Thanks for the pie, Milk!  Gotta love those percentages!! 


I weighed in at 128.0 today, so I think that's only down 1.8.  Better than nothing.....


Off to exercise now...looking for a bigger loss this week!

post #272 of 347

I am back from my week of travel. Sorry to say business travel is a killer and I am up 2 lbs at 173. Sorry red team crap.gif

post #273 of 347

168.8, down only 1.8 from last week. I'm a little bummed because two days ago I was down to 168.0; not sure what caused it to creep back up. Oh well, a loss is still a loss, and it feels good to kiss the 170's goodbye!

post #274 of 347

I weighed 216.8.  Only a little down from 217.4.  I'm going back to Weight Watchers. It still will probably be slow going because of breastfeeding, but at least I'll be more conscious of how much I'm eating.  Still not getting enough exercise on non hockey days. I could add more rink days, but it means getting up at 5 :30am and being on the ice by 6am, and making sure I'm home by 7 to get my dd up and ready for school.

post #275 of 347
Yay! I weighed in at 217 yesterday, so glad it went down not up.
post #276 of 347

Holy Shit guys. I took my measurements on 10/1/12 (arms, bust, waist, hips, thigh, calf) and I redid them all today. I have lost 28.5 inches since then. So happy. I love seeing that my fat arms are 2.25 inches smaller than they used to be! My waist is 8 inches tighter! Really pleased and so happy I have measurements and not just pounds to celebrate.

post #277 of 347

Holy crap clay bear!  That's awesome!

post #278 of 347

Claybear, that is soooooo awesome!!        joy.gif

post #279 of 347

I fell off the bandwagon for 48 hours! I stepped on the scale this morning. I gained a pound! Stepped it up today, hopefully I will have pounds lost to report on monday.



How is everyone else doing?

post #280 of 347

Claybear...absolutely fabulous!!  You go!!!  Wish I had thought to take measurements when I started.


I'm with you, Trekkingirl.  I went out with some friends on Tuesday night to celebrate the completion of a very, very large volunteer fundraising project that I chaired.  Well, lots of margaritas and nachos is not so good for weight loss...although it was great for my sanity!  I'm afraid to go near the scale!  After eating so healthy for the last several weeks, it was really noticeable how bad all that dairy and sugar made me feel.  I'm still recovering! 


Dantesmama..congratulations on kissing the 170's goodbye!  Here's to never seeing them again!!


I hope you're recovering nicely from surgery, Buzzer.  You are like the tortoise...slow and steady wins the race.smile.gif


It sounds like you have lots going on, Stegenrae.  I hope you get it all figured out soon.  And don't worry about the red team!!


Congrats to everyone else on their losses!  Once you're back to your regular routine, that weight will fall right off, Pacific


I'm off to exercise.....
